TISBURY – Tisbury Police report that on Thursday their officers along with members of the Martha’s Vineyard Drug Task Force, conducted a search warrant at the Steamship Authority terminal in Vineyard Haven led by Detective Duquette.

As a result of this investigation, Patrick Ryan Doyle of Swansea, MA was placed under arrest on charges of trafficking fentanyl over 10 grams, and possession with intent to distribute a Class B substance (cocaine).

Doyle was found to be in possession of 974 wax baggies of suspected fentanyl. This is approximately 1,000 hits of a deadly substance that could have been distributed throughout the island in a short period of time.

In addition, Doyle was found to be in possession of approximately a half ounce of cocaine.

Police say that undoubtedly taking these drugs off the street prevented multiple drug overdoses in the community.
